. but we need a gang of 51. i've talked with president obama about this. he is extremely committed. i would like to see a number of other things. incidentally, senator durbin deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he has done with the dream act. he will be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi

with the headline saying that he could slow down obama's efforts on gun control. have the two of you talked about any sort of compromise legislation? guest: we've had some good conversations in terms of the leadup to this new congress. he called to congratulate me, and he and i have had some discussions about different things that we might work together on, but we have not specifically spoken about gun issues. host: immigration reform? guest: we have not talked about immigration reform in the broader sense and my predecessor, lamar smith, had extensive discussions with regard to the legislation that the house passed at the end of the last congress in december to address a program that i've been trying to eliminate for many years called the visa lottery or visa diversity program. 55,000 green cards given away not based on family reunification or job skills that are needed in the united states but based on pure luck. that was then tied to a program to encourage people who attend u.s. universities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds to stay in the u.s., use those skills

talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not

's just have this conversation without hurling political accusations, you know. i usually oppose mr. obama's economic policies. on this one he laid them out. let's have a talk about it. if we can come up with something better fine. anyway thank you ben, thank you la smp lars, thank you nan. >> the faa just announced grounding the 787 boeing dreamliner until further notice. how crushing is this for boeing. the big airlines themselves, phil lebeau has a live report for us in just a moment and later in the show the debt battle seems to be tearing conservatives apart. once between i say do not play chicken with the debt ceiling and risk a default. by free market coke brothers agree. a new team of conservatives seems to be ignoring that advice and i think they are wrong but we'll debate it and don't forget, folks, free market capitalism is still the best path to prosperity. this is still the greatest country in the world. let us figure out our problems and we'll continue to greatness. i'm kudlow. we'll be right back. officeyour business needs...k... at prices that keep you...out of the red. thi

've been here for four years, serving in the obama administration. but let me ask you about the fact that we've been talking about that the president appointed veterans from wars, war veterans, john kerry, chuck hagel, to his second term cabinet. and yet it is interesting how the diminishing number of combat veterans in the united states congress, you're among the new ones, but believe it or not, there's a diminishing number of those members of congress who have served. how important do you think it is to have more combat veterans serve in the u.s. congress? >> i think it's very important that we have more combat veterans serving in the congress, on both sides of the aisle. i do think that that shared experience will allow us to work with one another and hopefully cooperate. and, you know, one of the things about being in the military, it's all about the mission. it's not about you or your personal ideologies. it's about getting the mission done. so i hope that in this next congress, i will certainly be able to reach out to my fellow iraqs and afghanistan vets, as well as the previou
